The annual Christmas Gift & Food Fair at Ripon Cathedral will return on Saturday 23rd November. Doors open at 9.30am and close at 4.30pm, with entry still just £3 cash on the door (children under 12 – free.)

With over 100 local traders selling seasonal goodies you’re sure to find that perfect present! The fair makes Christmas shopping enjoyable, whilst supporting local, independent businesses from around Yorkshire.

The event has something for everyone with children’s activities and the chance to visit Santa in his grotto.  Enjoy turkey sandwiches and mulled wine, whilst listening to carols, all in the beautiful setting of Ripon Cathedral – the perfect festival day out!

Molly Lawson, Fundraising Events Officer said: “The Christmas Fair is a fantastic community fundraising event, the cathedral comes alive with festive cheer – it is a real highlight in the events calendar and we are looking forward to welcoming many visitors again this year.”

Why not make use of our Park and Ride service, running from Wolseley Car Park on Boroughbridge Road and dropping passengers directly outside the main entrance of the cathedral. The first bus will run at 10.30am, with the last bus at 3.00pm. This is a free service, but we ask for donations to be made on the bus, with proceeds going to the cathedral.

You can find more details on the Cathedral Website HERE and do find the event on Facebook Event for up to date information.
